Nagaland plunged into a political crisis on Sunday with former Chief Minister T.R. Zeliang staking claim to form a new government by ousting the incumbent Shurhozelie Liezietsu.

Mr. Zeliang claimed the support of 41 of the 59 MLAs in the Assembly and wrote to Governor P.B. Acharya, seeking an invitation to form the new Naga People’s Front (NPF)-led Democratic Alliance of Nagaland government at the earliest.

Along with this was attached a statement purportedly signed by 41 MLAs, expressing support to Mr. Zeliang and demanding that Mr. Liezietsu should step down immediately.

Mr. Zeliang, who had to step down on February 22 following State-wide protests against holding of polls to urban local bodies with 33 per cent reservation for women, asserted that he had got the support of 41 MLAs after a majority of the ruling NPF legislators rebelled against Mr. Liezietsu.
